THANKS GUYS!! Im thinking of loosing the driver backrest though as it feels like it is pushing me forward even when it is almost not even touching me. BUT i'll give it few hundred more miles to tell for sure. The pic really does not do it justice either. There is only one small scratch on the front fender. When it is clean and waxed ti does look like a new one.

I am still convinced the 1200 was the nicest wing that honda made (except for the poor alternator)

nice looking bike!

Damn good looking bike, it's so nice you ought to consider painting it green then it would be near perfect! I hope you can get used to the back rest, I tried and failed with the 1200 and the 1500. No matter where I set it I also felt like it wa either pushing me forward or so far back it didn't do any good. Also made it awkward for that woman who hangs around here.

okay, one other grip about the 1200 my wife HATES the seat. it is her bike and she is tall... maybe it is the cramped leg position.... still think the 1200 is great though:1000darkblue::12blue:

Before you ditch the drivers backrest try a set of Highway boards, feet forward the backrest takes the strain off your kidneys and actualy makes for a far more comfortable long distance run.

Great looking Bike, looks very familar except for color...,,,,,,Give the backrest a chance. Now thatI am used to mine I would not want to give it up, and 2 bolts is no big deal if I want it off for some reason... It came with highway boards,, I took them off felt like I was doing the splits.....it is all up to the indivduals comfort...:)

Don't you just hate it when you get her all cleaned up and then go down a dusty road,,,seems like the wing just stirs up dust like crazy,,,maybe a front fender extension and a rear mud flap might help......:gunhead:

The back rest is not a goner yet! I do like the way it supports you under hard acceleration:clapper:.

hey rcmatt007,

get atouring seat for taller riders, I'm 6'2 and sure, the 1200 has a cramped riding position, but I bit the bullet and bought a Hartco seat for 6'-6'6 ridersand now the bike rides like it should have stock. Like sitting in an armchair,and I'm sure your wife would loveit :cool::cool::cool:

Get some kind of seat other than the stock one,,,I could not stay in the saddle too long with it , my spine would go numb... I got a Corbin and I love it, I take the old ROHO Airhawk cushion for extra long rides,,,I like it better than the Gel cushions, It should be comfortable at over $100 for a new one....:shock:
